This section describes the strike price, pricing, and tick convention used for instruments available it ITC 2.1 format. The ITC price is the format used in all open outcry prices disseminated through the market data MDP interfaces. One method for obtaining the open outcry strike prices and prices is from ITC 2.1 fractional /Decimal indicator.

Price
The price field will be disseminated as a sevenbyte numeric field. The delineation of the whole number portion of the, and decimal or fractional portion of the price, will be defined by the Price Fractional Indicator Code (i.e., a price 123 4/8^{th} cents will be displayed as 0001234).
No truncation of price data is permitted with the exception for high order zero for products which trade in fraction of 1/10,000,000 or smaller. Therefore, products such as some currencies which are customarily traded in smaller increments will approximately $.0.035740 per Russian Ruble. Any product traded in smaller increments will have traded leading zeros.
Example:
aM FQ 904911131613510 b RU M11EM116 0035740+T 9 9c
Price Sign
This is one byte code which represent a “+” for a positive number (or Zero) and”“ for negative number. A blank will be used if the price itself is blank.
The tick is the minimum price fluctuation allowed for a futures or options contract during a trading session as specified by the contract terms of CME Group. An instrument will have standard tick.
BAT Code
Associated with any price field will be a BAT code to designate the price as a Bid, Ask, or Trade, as defined below.
